Man Builds Neighborhood Swimming Pool After Wife’s Death
Lonely after the death of his wife, Keith Davison has filled his yard with children by installing a pool. Peace and quiet seem like a good thing, until you’ve had too much. Keith Davison got his fill in the months that followed the death of his wife Evy.
“You just can’t imagine what it’s like,” says Davison, who lost his wife to cancer in 2016 after a marriage of 66 years. “You cry a lot. That’s just the way it is, because she’s not here.”
But it’s not quiet at Davison’s house anymore. Late this spring the 94-year-old retired judge installed in his backyard an in-ground pool – then filled it with the neighborhood kids.
